If you'll read the ad, the seller says:
NOTE: All of turbo parts and accessories do need to modification in order to fits perfectly.
But don't pay any attention to that. The seller is lying. It all fits perfectly from the start, trust me. An eBay seller couldn't sell you something that didn't fit, they're just being modest. The pieces are all top quality and you should buy that kit right now!!!

Ok, I've done some heavy pruning to get this thread back on topic. If your post was one of the 30 or so that were deleted, don't get all butt-hurt and start complaining. I simply nuked everything that was written after the flame war started.

Here's some good empirical data from a user at Miata.net who recently had a welded T3 log-style S/S manifold fail pretty severely:

MX-5 Miata Forum - Cheap eBay Manifold






EDIT: some further info from the owner of this manifold.

Wow. The manifold lasted less than 1,000 miles before developing the first crack. Even my Greddy manifold, which historically has had a reputation for being extremely crack-prone, is still running fine after nearly 4 years and close to 10,000 miles.

i know stainless isnt the best for a turbo manni.. anyways, would it be a good or bad idea to buy this kit, and eventually replace the turbo with a legit turbo down the road?

How about you go to page 1 of this thread, start reading and answer your own damn dumbass question.

Then make an intro thread, then start reading and stop posting w/o doing so.

Yes.

You need to add T-bolt hose clamps. They are obviously not listed or pictured.

This would certainly depend on your goals. Would your future plans involve running more than around 100Kpa of intake pressure?

And what do you think a "legit turbo" you would change to later would be?

You have given me precious little information on which to base my answer.

I was always curious why there's a whole for sale section of eBay turbo kits if we're all opposed to them? Is it just for forum sponsorship?

Yah, stainless steel is the worst material for turbo manifolds. Aluminum works much better.
If youre really baller you will cast your turbo mani out of cement

so with only 8 pounds you dont need any type of hose clamp? Just the couplers holding the charge pipes together?

I'm sorry guy, but have you even read through this entire thread? Just reading the very first post where three different turbo kits are discussed, and the parts they come with, will tell you if the kit is going to work for you or not.

In all honesty, given the questions you are asking, you'd be way better off buying a used turbo setup from someone here.

And please read through the DIY faq. It'll answer a lot of the questions you are going to have.

I asked because the one in the first post wasnt included...

Judging from the pictures and description, it appears to be missing a downpipe, all of the pre-compressor intake plumbing, oil and water lines, and anything resembling fuel or ignition management.

But hey, turbo not hit block!
